Chaloem Rattanakosin National Park - Nong Prue District

Known locally as "Tham Than Lot", the relatively small park (54 sq.km) is a nature lovers delight! Forest, waterfalls and several caves are ready to be explored and there is a 2.5 km nature trail which follows the stream through Than Lat Yai and Than Lot Noi caves.

Regular buses from Kanchanaburi town take about 2 hours to arrive in Nong Plue District. From the bus station in Nong Plue, taxis can take you to the park entrance.

Sri Nakarin Dam

In Si Sawat District, close to Erawan National Park, this impressive hydro-electric power plant sits on the River Kwai. On the top level of the site is the lake, an excellent spot to fish or just relax.

Srinagarindra National Park - Si Sawat District

Just a short distance further north from Erawan National Park, Srinagarindra National Park covers over 1,500 sq.km. getting to the park is not that easy, as the last 40km is over a mud road which can only be taken by motorbike or 4x4. The best way to get to the park is by a chartered boat from Tha Kradan Pier.

All the hassle of getting to the park are worth it once you get here! The main highlight is Huai Mae Khamin Waterfall, but also worthwhile are boat trips on the reservoir which offer some spectacular views and not forgetting a trek through the forest and bamboo groves.
